The payment amount must be greater than zero

Hi Patrick,

GNUcash has taken a huge amount of unpaid voluntary work by people who 
like to code.

The way things get done in a project like this is to raise a bug report 
and wait;  but don't hold your breath as the feature or behaviour you 
want might never get done. That's the nature of projects like this, run 
by volunteers and in this case not sponsored by a corporation or other 

One way in which you might want to try and prioritise your request is to 
offer money. There might be some developer subscribing to the list 
who'll take up your offer. Of course, people might not have the time or 
expertise to take up your offer but it sometimes works. You might be 
supprise how much even the small change your asking for could cost, or 
should cost.

Best wishes,


Andrew Wood, Oxford, England
